This is my 4th visit since 1955, the 3rd site. Love(d) them all! The special Lalique exhibit was fantastic. Loved the demonstrations. Will be back in 2015 to see the new wing.

The best part is in the back building-all the Steuben and Tiffany glass. There are exhibits in the front building of glass throughout history. It's amazing when you think how long humans have been making glass. They have a glass blowing demonstration, too. Also the glass shop is a fun time-there are many bargains to be had. Good value for... More

I traveled to CMOG with 3 teenage girls (14 & 15 year olds). We went specifically to try our hands at glass-making. The girls participated in 4 hands-on activities. Many of the activities are open to all ages (4 and up), there are a few restricted activities. The girls did two "all ages" activites; they created windchimes and performed sandblasting.... More

If you get to Corning go to this museum. See all styles of glass art live and in person. The art, history and function of glass is all there for you to see and understand. Well worth the time and money.

Loved the glass blowing demo. The glass items in the museum were interesting and beautiful. The "gift shop" was lovely with a huge variety of interesting items.

Was bowled over by the Corning Museum of Glass. Was much bigger and better than I thought it would be, with an amazing and extensive display of glassware, in all different forms, colors and designs. They had demonstrations on how to make various glass pieces, how optic fiber cables work plus an area where you can make your own glass... More

We stopped here for an afternoon while driving through Corning. There are many activities and demonstrations that we all found really cool and interesting. Gives you a new appreciation when you see the various glass items in stores. Our boys (13,15) both enjoyed it. We spent approx 4 hrs, and 2 of us would have liked more time:-)). They have... More

This is a huge place. I honestly did not expect to like Corning museum as much as I did. It is both educational and historical. I really liked watching the demonstrations on how they make some of the glass pieces. The food is pretty good at the restaurant and the gift shop is huge with a lot of really neat... More

Somewhat interesting if you enjoy art and history, but kids will be bored for the most part. The displays are very extensive. Nice cafe.

The museum is big enough to satisfy your appetite for all things glass and the live demonstrations are very well done. They have regular events and the 2300 degrees events are great for locals and those visiting the town for a night. They do tours and have people that speak multiple languages as this museum has a daily flow of... More
